MCC’s commitment to transparency means making all results — both positive and negative — public. No wonder the 2011 Publish What You Fund aid transparency report ranks MCC as the most transparent U.S. government donor and the seventh most transparent donor in the world. Such a frank and open embrace of what works and does not work creates a platform for learning, not just for learning’s sake, but to improve performance, make midcourse corrections and inform better development projects throughout the development community.
MCC’s continuum of results framework provides an innovative, systematic process for tracking results every step of the way. It is one way MCC “gives the taxpayer real bang for the buck,” according to a Fortune magazine article on how we are changing global aid. Such accountable, responsible development assistance is how MCC delivers results that matter to us all.
